From classic lamb recipes to modernized “California-cuisine,” Easter is a great time to get family and friends together for celebration. I’m a huge fan of hearty Sunday Brunches or Early Sunday Dinners where people relax, hang out, laugh, and enjoy one another’s company. In addition, since there’s a holiday involved, festivities are in the mix with themes, games, and activities. Here are the Best Easter Recipes and Traditions in 2018.

First of all, let’s start the day by making Traditions through fun activities such as:

  • an Easter Egg Hunt
  • dyeing hard-boiled eggs
  • relay races with hard-boiled eggs
  • the egg “bash” game
  • the hidden treasure Easter Egg basket.

Here’s a link to details about how to conduct each game and activity. Easy & Fun.

    Hunting for the eggs is such fun! After the first “hunt” that is provided by the real Easter Bunny – the eggs can be hidden again and again. To add to the excitement – have the person who is hiding the eggs make a list of the number of eggs and their colors. That way, it is known when all the eggs are “re-found”! We also have a different person hide the eggs each time. That way – everyone has the opportunity to be the “Easter Bunny”.
    Thank you for all your great ideas, Sarah!

      Yes! I remember there have been a few times where we’re missing an egg and we don’t find it till the following year! Hahahaha.
